Substitution of physical density and emotional density. Overcrowding in modern cities is an inevitable phenomenon. Although many people in subways and airplanes, which are efficient means of transportation, coexist overcrowded, there is little bond between them. As the physical density increases, the emotional density decreases. In the modern anonymous space, individuals create their own imaginary space rather than forming relationships with other people.

By uniting the surreal and the mundane, Cha Min-Young’s work is inhabited by both the familiar and the extraordinary. Min-Young offers an insight into an alternate reality; one that is ever-present just beyond the boundaries of our own known existence. Encouraging the viewer to look beyond what first meets the eye, she injects uncanny pockets of life into found objects that would otherwise be overlooked and invisible - ultimately allowing the viewer to question their perception of life beyond their own. A big hit when she showed at START Art Fair at the Saatchi Gallery.
